A terrified 6-week-old puppy sat in the corner of a kennel in a rural Texas shelter waiting to die. She had no name, no identity, and no one but the shelter knew she even existed. Sadly, their only solution was to euthanize her – too many dogs, too many puppies and no one to give them a home and no one to love them.
It was on Friday evening that volunteers posted the puppy’s plight on Facebook. Her story went like this:
“A terrified puppy sits in a corner in a kennel. She has no name. No identity. No one knows she exists but those whose job it is to kill her. No mom to shelter her from this misery, no siblings to keep her company. She sits in a kennel by herself . She is too young to be this frightened . She is too young to be here it all.”
Just hours later, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC came to the puppy’s rescue. Now named Polly, she has been transported to the organization’s partner veterinarian for life saving medical treatment. Polly will never be lonely again.
